Pre-event massage can help excite muscles prior to performance which can reduce the risk of injury and maximise performance. Additionally, pre-event massage allows time for mental preparation.

Post-event massage can assist healing and improve recovery by increasing the removal of waste products and the deliverance of nutrients to the exercise muscles. Post-event massage can also prevent delayed onset of muscle soreness (DOMS).

Massage treatment can be beneficial when applied as part of a training programme to maintain healthy muscles and prevent injury. Massage treatment can be combined with exercise prescription to maximise performance and improve flexibility and strength.
